Hi All (in the greater Chicago area),

If you are thinking about getting started with Matterport – or are already a seasoned Matterport Pro – this Matterport run free Meetup in Chicago is for you!

Play with one or all of these Matterport compatible cameras at the Hands-on with Matterport 3D Virtual Tour Cameras Meetup in Chicago:

✅ Insta360 One X
✅ Leica Geosystems BLK360
✅ Matterport Pro2 3D Camera
✅ Ricoh Theta V
✅ Ricoh Theta Z1

(Trying to decided between an Insta360 or Ricoh? Playing with the Cameras will be a huge help.)

Plus, the Matterport Meetup presentation says:

✅ What we will cover in our session:
✅ How are 3D Virtual Tours different than panoramas or 360s?
✅ What are the key differences between the 360 and the Pro camera options?
✅ What to consider when selecting a camera
✅ What industries and uses are best suited for each camera?
✅ Why Matterport?
✅ Have any questions about Matterport? We have experts on hand to answer them.
✅ Matterport Pro2 3D cameras are available both at the event (limited quantity) and online. Meetup attendees will receive a $200 discount code for the Pro2 camera, whether purchased on-site or online
✅ Meetup attendees will receive discount codes related to Insta360 ONE X and Ricoh Theta Z1 camera

Free! Sandwiches, salads, desserts, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages will be served!

RSVP Here | Details | Free

Feel free to post here too that you are going. It's always nice to meet other MSPs; especially when Matterport is picking up the bar bill!

I could imagine that if this Matterport Meetup is well attended – and results in new Matterport customers – that Matterport will do this event in more markets.

----

Best,

Dan

P.S. I would to see this Matterport Meetup post say, "Matterport Service Providers are especially welcome. Some of the attendees may prefer to outsource shooting Matterport; so, come and make some connections."

@DanSmigrod I would have loved to have seen this posted 4 month ago so plans could be made to attend.

I can't imagine flying in for this Meetup. You could buy the three under $1,000 cameras for less that your air/hotel/meals.

@DanSmigrod, no I understand that I am still looking for a Matterport Conference of their own, something that is not just sales pitches. I have asked for this in the past and wish MP would dedicate two or three days. I have been to product dedicated conferences and no they are not as big as SPAR or some of the other conference but I have found them very helpful when you get a bunch of user in with upper management, engineers and talk about where the company is going, what to look forward to and current issues. But then as a user group we hear from others on how they are using MP, the short comings we see as individuals or companies. I have been to several for FARO, Leica and even Nikon or Cannon to find the equipment does not have a short coming but I could use it in a different manor to get the most out of it. This could still have an underlying sales theme for MP, and personally I think an even better sales opportunity if potential buyers see how many own the system, use it and actual feed back. Unless MP is worried the feed back will be to negative but in the long run people with negative feed back will not spend the money to go, I find people that are actually trying to benefit from the conference attend. I have been frustrated with the system but I am still onboard and think it has great things to come.

Ah! A Matterport User Conference.

I believe Matterport tried doing that once before. I do not recall that they actually did it.

As you know, as I attend conferences, I often do a "Matterport Meetup" .. but that's just a few peeps getting together (like you!)

Separately, but related ...

Is this (see screen grab below) Matterport #AEC event close to you? It's going on now.

No sadly enough they didn't like other things with MP there is a release post, hopes are up then boom nothing. I signed up for updates to go, got one or two posts then nothing and then when asked about it no response. I just was hoping.

Cancelled? That's silly.

This event would have been a great opportunity to not only reach out to a group of interested buyers, but to generate some awesome buzz online on social media to promote future events.

@Metroplex360 it was a very low sign up rate in Chicago. We are going to try San Francisco next with more time to drive event awareness.

@Jwbuckl I understand wanting to cancel because of low turn out. But this is twice Matterport has cancelled an event, so as a group how can we trust Matterport setting up an event and following thru with it. Last time there was several months to prepare and present and they still canceled.

@ron0987 I am not familiar with the other canceled event to which you refer but events may indeed be subject to change by either the event organizer or Matterport marketing. Were you planning on attending the Chicago event?

Mattertport has a robust "Major Event" calendar for the US and EMEA through the end of the year and whether you are a newbie or a Pro, we would love to see you! We are experimenting with a sprinkling in of small, minor, local "pop-up" type of events in markets in the US and Europe. These small Meetups are not reflected in our events calendar until they are planned for execution. We target these small events for 75 attendees and they occur if the sign-ups are there.

If you can join us, here is what the rest of the year looks like (minus the Meetups which you will see promoted from time to time.) If you see booth = TBD, this means the actual booth number assignment has not been made yet.

@Jwbuckl
I think you are still missing the point and not sure what to say, these all appear to be Matterport showing up mostly to sell your product and that is great. I was talking about a user conference hosted and presented by Matterport like the Chicago event. With MP experts coming in presenting and showing the best use of what MP has to offer. I do not need to go to a sales event I own a camera. So I am not sure your point but again maybe if you research the previous event you would find the one we are talking about. This is not to dispute MP showing up to events, I know they do but a user conference is totally different than showing up to sell.

@ron0987 I understand your point. I was responsible for the planning of and then ultimately the canceling of the Chicago event (due to poor sign-ups). We are still committed to the hands-on format of these Meetups and will try the same in other cities where we think demand warrants. We are looking to the San Francisco Bay area for the next one.

Unfortunately, Matterport does not yet have a true users' conference in the works at this time, but I will be sure to surface this topic with the appropriate executives for longer-term planning. Meanwhile, perhaps these Meetups can fill this gap in major markets?
